SPECIAL THANKS BOWL HISTORY HONORS TCU GEORGIA PRESIDENT SCOTT BARBER 2 | 58th AutoZone Liberty Bowl BOWL EVENTS WELCOME 58th Annual AutoZone Liberty Bowl WELCOME TO MEMPHIS AND THE 58TH ANNUAL AUTOZONE LIBERTY BOWL FOOTBALL CLASSIC! We, along with our entire community, would like to welcome the Georgia Bulldogs and TCU Horned Frogs to Memphis and the AutoZone Liberty Bowl. Through hard work and dedication, these two outstanding universities earned their way to our bowl game. We congratulate the players and coaches of these two exceptional teams for achieving their goal of playing in a postseason bowl game. The AutoZone Liberty Bowl’s long history comprises many of college football’s finest. Four-time AutoZone Liberty Bowl coach, the legendary Paul “Bear” Bryant, heads the list of coaches who have walked the Bowl’s sidelines. The list also includes all-time greats such as Lou Holtz, Tom Osborne, Steve Spurrier and Urban Meyer. The impressive lineup of players reads like a “Who’s Who” of college football. Heisman Trophy winners such as Ernie Davis, Terry Baker, Doug Flutie and Bo Jackson have played in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl. More recently, players such as Donovan McNabb, Shaun King, Ryan Mallett, A.J. Green and Dak Prescott have starred in our game. The 58th AutoZone Liberty Bowl’s festival of events and today’s game are made possible by the generous support of our wonderful corporate sponsors. I want to thank our title sponsor AutoZone for their tremendous support. I would also like to thank FedEx, Pennzoil, Bass Pro Shops and other community partners for their endorsement. The mission of our Board of Directors, volunteers and staff is to create the best possible bowl experience. We extend our deepest gratitude and thanks for your support. Your presence and attendance today ensures our 58 years of bowl tradition and history will continue. Yet, today’s game is not just about football. The AutoZone Liberty Bowl takes great pride in the association with the life-saving efforts of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. The kids of St. Jude and their families say, “Thank you for your support!” We hope you enjoy your stay, the game and all the festivities of the 58th AutoZone Liberty Bowl! Sincerely, Scott Barber President 58th Annual AutoZone Liberty Bowl
